DoDublin City on a Budget

People in Dublin Park

The summer holidays are upon us! Dublin has become a popular spot to visit for all types of tourists due to an endless array of hospitality and entertainment facilities but some options can prove expensive for those of us on a budget. DoDublin will help you tackle this by highlighting affordable exciting locations and great value deals to make everyone’s visit as memorable and manageable as possible.


Cheap and cheerful ways to see the city

Dublin is a big place, although it is great to spend some time on foot to get up close to the city’s hidden gems we do recommend avoiding paying for taxis and spending your money on more exciting and appealing experiences when it comes to venturing out and about. The Freedom Ticket provides unlimited access over a 72-hour period to the city’s most frequent and reliable transport services with a 48-hour Hop-On Hop-Off city tour pass to help visitors get the most out of their stay. It offers many unique incentives including free entry to the Little Museum of Dublin and Pat Liddy walking tour.

There is a range of fantastic attractions that don’t require an entry fee in the heart of Dublin such as Chester Beatty Library, the National Museum of Ireland, the National Gallery of Ireland, and many other spots that showcase the rich history and culture of the capital.


Visiting Dublin during the summer while the weather is good provides many more possibilities. We encourage explorers to take advantage of the gorgeous green spaces and parks in the city to soak up the sun and discover some treasures. Stroll through St Stephens Green, Merrion Square, the Iveagh Gardens for some statue hunting or sit back and enjoy the lively atmosphere as you watch the world go by.
